beginning tomorrow 7:00 p.m. eastern right here on cnn. > if president obama wins re-election, it potentially sets up a huge battle. we're taking a closer look at what may happen if he gets to replace one of the conservatives on the united states supreme court. [ male announcer ] in blind taste tests, even ragu users chose prego. prego?! but i've bought ragu for years. [ thinking ] wonder what other questionable choices i've made? i choose date number 2! whooo! [ sigh of relief ] [ male announcer ] choose taste. choose prego. and the candidate's speech is in pieces all over the district. the writer's desktop and the coordinator's phone are working on a joke with local color. the secure cloud just received a revised intro from the strategist's tablet. and while i make my way into the venue, the candidate will be rehearsing off of his phone. [ candidate ] and thanks to every young face i see out there. [ woman ] his phone is one of his biggest supporters. [ female announcer ] with cisco at the center... working together has never worked so well. i've got two tickets to
this country back to where it needs to be. my question for the debate was what did obama right about at harvard? we don't have access to newspapers. he always talked about being transparent. i would like to hear what he was writing about and harvard. host: on facebook -- and you can read more on our facebook page. jeffrey in michigan on the democratic line. caller: good morning. thanks for letting me talk on c- span. i don't plan on watching the debate, because it's going to be the same old thing over and over again. i am fairly well-informed. you've got so many people that are uninformed and they call in to c-span. they give us such a great opportunity to speak and then get such ignorant people calling in. i listen, i read, and i inform myself. obama is not really doing anything as far as i can see. i don't blame him for the jobs and that kind of stuff. what i don't like about him is he is keeping this war going. i listen to some independents yesterday and they made more sense than anybody. we are just wasting money on other countries and people are really suffering here. we probably won't get
should look at in polls is the trends and how things are moving over time, the orrrents. and right now those favor barack obama. the polls are really more like a painting than they are a digital photograph. one of the other complaints is that pollsters are talking to too many democrats. in 2004 democrats said pollsters were talking to too many oepublicans. it's a standard complaint for the party that the currents are moving against. >> pelley: john, why is there such a difference between the whichnal poll which is lssentially a tie and the poll in the battleground states? >> well, they're really polls of to different countries. the battleground states people erentseen millions of dollars of e battany negative. they've gotten visits on their doorstep from campaign isitsteers. they've gotten mail, visits from the candidates. in the rest of the country the polling is made up of states where none of that is going on. there's no evidence that the polls in the battleground states benefit one party or the other. o 2008, the mccain campaign was saying "look at the battleground state polls, pay
have been showing a tight race with president obama around 49, 50%, mitt romney in the mid 40s or so, so mitt romney is within striking distance right now but there's no doubt that 47% comment did hurt him. >> chris cizilla, a decision today in pennsylvania, a legal decision. >> yep. >> which could have a big impact because if pennsylvania ever were going to be in play, now it will not according to what the republican hopes had been. this was the voter i.d. law and struck down by a judge, said there's no way to get voter i.d.s to so many people in time for election day. >> right. this was always i think because as you point out, a narrow timeline, five weeks to the day from the election, but what this does is it does not put that strict voter i.d. law in place for pennsylvania. and i think barring some change or data i've not seen, i'm not convinced pennsylvania was in play even if law had been upheld. i just don't think the votes add up for republicans in pennsylvania. i always say it's like charlie brown, lucy and the football. every time charlie brown tries to kick the football, l
. >>> but first, right now some brand new stories and breaking news this hour. gregg: that's right. we are counting down to the first presidential faceoff. president obama, governor mitt romney cramming for their first debate tomorrow night in denver. and new questions about whether the president's health care law could soon be back before the u.s. supreme court. judge andrew napolitano weighs in. >>> and jaw-dropping pictures you won't want to miss. wait until you see what cameras caught when discovery tv intentionally crashed a 727 jet liner in an investigation, where's the safest place for you to sit when you fly? we're going to show you, all "happening now." gregg: hello, everybody, i'm gregg jarrett in for jon scott. jenna: hi, everybody, i'm jenna lee. brand new polling out today giving us a snapshot of how the race for the white house is shaping up on the 'of the first -- on the eve of the first presidential debate. the latest quinnipiac poll showing the president leading among likely voters, and that matters. [laughter] take a look at this poll, this same poll shows a much wide
're thinking about right now is what's going to be the tone of mitt romney and president obama? what they want to know is what are you going to do? how are you going to make my life better over the next four years? we spent more time focused, talking about what -- when i say we i mean a broad media. superficial stuff, what color tie they have on, how are they standing, were they sighing as opposed to what had did they say? that's what matters to somebody sitting out there. >> this comes to someone criticizing the color of my tie before. >> dude, think about it. you need some color. >> governor strickland, i'm surprised how optimistic he s he sounds like the race is over and that obama has this sewn up. >> sour surrogate. >> kudos to him for saying what he believes. usually they play expectations down, talk about what a great debater obama is and how terrible romney strickland was sounding like it's over. >> i'm so tired of playing down expectations. >> me, too. romney is promising to honor temporary work permits for younger illegal immigrants who were allowed to remain in the u.s. after that e
against obama that romney can get away with saying things on things like immigration and abortion rights he couldn't possibly have gotten away with when he was running in the primaries, which is what dug him this big hole. i'm predicting a move to the center because he's all over the map right now and he's got to be some place in this debate. >> harwood? >> i agree in part and disagree in part with gene. i don't think this is a contrived event. i think this is two guys on stage. >> yeah. >> in front of tens of millions of people. >> that sounds pretty contrived to me. >> what's contrived about it? they're making the case for the people picking the president. and they've got to show with authenticity and passion what they would do for the country. i think romney's biggest problem has been a lack of authenticity. people not being sure if he's saying what he believes and if he's really bringing the actual expertise he's got inside of him to bear in the campaign. and i think that's what he's got -- >> alex, how long are the debates? >> 90 minutes. >> 90 minutes, okay. i just think -- i think
of the folks at the pizza party right afterwards. barack obama is it 34? >> 37. barack obama 36. so whatever it is, it is really coming up quick and obviously nevada is going to be critical to this election. >> john: the president doesn't know how many days until the election. he doesn't care how many -- you think he really didn't know how many days until the election? >> i mean -- first of all these outrageous countdowns to a certain day drive me nuts but we're not that far out. >> john: it's not that far out. he should know. i would think he knows. >> john: i think he's aware of it. that's how cool and off the cuff he is. mitt romney, of course, not to be outdone he is giving a foreign policy speech next week after the debate. the two candidates are not campaign today. they're both taking time off for today only to work on their debate prep. of course, mitt romney is rehearsing with rob portman of ohio standing in for barack obama because really when you think about black neoprogressive democrat, who do you want
. "the new york times" rights abroad this, the continuity about obama and bush, for that matter. they only changed things 10 degrees one way or the other. there will be some issues. obviously, there's no question that romney takes a different view on how to deal with russia. on iran, it's harder call, for instance. maybe you're going to get to this eventually, -- >> we are only 25 minutes in. i consider it to be an on unreasonable possibility regardless of who is in the white house that the united states might end up engaging in military action with iran, what will that do to all of these consensuses about spending and whether american people are injected in foreign policy and issues like the defense budget? as issues like that and the ones we do not even know about that make me wary of all of these straight line projections we're making in the future of based on what things look like right now. >> which point? >> any of them. but i meant the one about iran and the likelihood we would enter into that regardless of who wins. what's right now, it's not clear to me. >> question fro
is there a way, are you doing anything to get into the debate cycle with obama and romney? >> host: we had a similar question, governor johnson, via twitter. what do you say? >> guest: well, right now i'm excluded from the first debate. the commission that determines who gets in the debates is the presidential debate commission, and guess what? the presidential debate commission is private, and they're made up of republicans and democrats with absolutely no interest whatsoever in seeing a third voice on stage. we have filed three lawsuits to get me on stage based on other third-party candidates who have filed lawsuits. there doesn't seem to be, there doesn't seem to be much hope, but we filed on anti-trust grounds, something that has not been done before. >> host: how much do these debates matter, gary johnson, and what are you looking forward to hearing on wednesday? >> guest: well, the debates are tantamount to my having a chance at winning. without being on the debates, i think that, um, you know, you can just kind of close the lid on being able to win the campaign -- win the election.
on facebook. tim says you bet, he plans to watch. a good debate brings out the good or bad given the right questions on who stumbles. connie says may be, probably. this could be good. i'm voting for obama. and janic says it will not be obama and romney it will be obama coordinating with the media attack in romney for hours. the candidate of dallas texas, independent collar. what is your take? >> caller: its come line restricted as an independent thinker, and my thought is i'm going to watch the debate probably when i get off of work, but my thought is this: when is the country going to wake up and start losing american lives and the whole middle east is ridiculous. it is in worse shape than it was ten years ago, and $3 trillion in debt and each side points to the other guy. they did it or they caused it. the democrats were in control for four years. two of them under busheir number obama. was bush's responsibility and nobody takes responsibility to the that is the problem coming and the voters need to take responsibility and get rid of every one of the incumbents. it might not be in this e
spammers herself and her border. we have a right to do that. we are not delayed. >> house has done better than the senate or the obama administration making its proceedings more transparent to the public online. that is according to participants of a semi-foundation for an in washington d.c. the group also discussed the fact that lawmakers not only read the legislation of full before voting on it. this is 90 minutes. >> welcome. my name is daniel schuman, director of the advising committee and transparency. today's discussion is going to focus on whether congress is serious about transparency. we are going to beat the one 112 congress and also identify some of the deficits. we are going to do my speaking portion very quickly because it's really interesting is of course a panelist on to say. to mr. for introducing them. on my right is hugh halpern, staff director for the u.s. house of representatives committee and rules. on the committee is served us chief advisor. immediately to my left is jim harper, director of policy studies at the cato institute and also the founder of washington watc
's not the congress, you're right, i've never been in congress, but i will be soon. but the congress did this and do that because obama did this and that. but let me tell you something. the constitution says that congress establishes the budget. so for you to stand here and say to you that you did not vote for this questor when you get -- this is not magical thinking. this is reality. i am not attacking you. i am describing you. it is a very difficult process. but i am trying. but you supported it and now you don't. there's a good reason why because you need to sit down and talk. >> moderator: let me ask one final question before we get to the concluding remark. that issue is one issue that has been on the virginia business community and the transportation infrastructure in virginia, virginia has been blessed to be called busted for doing business for a number of magazines for 10 or 15 or 20 years now. one of the issues that has arisen recently, they said we weren't doing enough for the transportation infrastructure. congressman cantor, is there anything that the federal government can be doing to a
transparency work is how political power functions. so the structure although political dialogue, and right now for the last two years that's been mastered front and to think that's a byproduct of having divided government. it's not the rules committee faults. in part it's obama's all but i think it's in ways a byproduct of what it means to have divided government. that's something we have to continue to think about as we think about how to structure how the house works and what kind of tools we should build on the outside. for real quickly, getting time notifications your. i look at the different categories of congressional -- to the things work really hard on working with, one is taking advantage of the political pressures that exist. we can't create those. nonprofits love to create political pressure. so we take what we can get. and for house reform with the majority having changed hands twice in the last six years or so, that means that a lot has changed recently because that puts us in, the house anymore -- the thing i want to mention is broad norms around how things should function. to th
